Back to School Events bowen_facade2
Right before school starts, each class is invited to participate in a special playdate so the children and parents can get to know each other. Examples include raspberry picking and meeting up at a playground. Each classroom lead teacher also makes a special trip to every child’s home to introduce herself and get to know the child before the first day in the classroom. This further smooths the transition.

Special Visitor’s Days
In October and February we invite a parent or special friend or family member to join each Bowen child in a seasonal activity and to share a special snack.
